Story

In the early hours of 14 June 2017; fire broke at at the Grenfell Tower block of flats; North Kensington, London, United Kingdom.

At least 78 people are missing & presumed dead in this tragedy and that number is expected to rise. Over 70 people are currently in hospitals across London, with 18 of those people in critical care.

Brought to you by Michael's Dream Foundation; our KidzPatrol project is designed to help children in these exact circumstances. We work with the emergency services to provide help & comfort to children & their families in times of crisis.

These families have lost everything. They are left with the clothes they are standing up in. All of their belongings, their homes, their toys, their memories have gone up in smoke. And this is in addition to the trauma of experiencing such a tragic & frightening event.

Our mission is to raise at least £10,000 to help the children affected & traumatised by the fire, to replace their toys, clothing & school supplies. This will in turn help their parents to focus on replacing basic domestic necessities.

Please do give what you can to help these people and especially these children. Even if you are able to donate just £10; it will help towards providing a comforting teddy bear to help a frightened child, feeler safer at night.

    Hello everyone. I'd like to extend a warm thank you to everybody who has donated to this very important fund. The fund will run until the end of November; after which we will be contacting the first responders in Kensington, London to arrange for the funds to be transformed into toys for the children of Grenfell. Please continue to give what you can. Even £10 will make a huge difference. Many of these children are still traumatised and need as much emotional comfort and love as we can possible give them! Thank you Kerry Ward Vice President

    We are hearing reports that the mental health of the survivors is in decline as a result of the traumatic experience. This is absolutely heightened in the children. Your donations are desperately needed to help us to provide comfort & emotional support to these terrified children. Please keep whatever you can afford, and help a child feel safer ♥
